Delivering your commercial EV transition

World EV Day reminds us of the amazing progress that has been made, but also of the challenges that await us in delivering a 100% electric future for transport. Our commercial EV info-hub includes a range of content for businesses thinking about installing workplace charging or shifting their fleet to EV.

The adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is no longer a question for tomorrow, it's already accelerating at the fastest pace ever. For many enterprise and public sector organisations, the transition to electric vehicles is now not only a big opportunity to become cleaner, more sustainable and more efficient; but an imperative to meet declared net zero commitments.

Over the last five years in particular, we've seen a surge in demand for electric vehicles in the UK – with new battery electric vehicle registrations up over 110% in year to date 2021 (compared with the same time period in 2020). These figures are no surprise giving increasing concern over the future of our planet, and will no doubt continue to rise even further as organisations respond to changing social attitudes, growing consumer pressure and new government regulations.

Below is a range of materials Centrica Business Solutions has created to help organisations identify, understand and act on the challenge of delivering a net zero transport strategy for their business.
